The "BER" months are here!!!

Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot, letter to Miss Lewis, 1st October 1841

Good morning!
I think the quote above sums up my feelings about Autumn! I feel it in my soul. Here in Arizona the mornings are a little cooler making trips to the dog park much more enjoyable. I more inclined to start projects that I need to do outside as its not blistering hot and/or humid!

A couple of weeks ago I started thinking about Fall decorations and when I was coming from the mailbox and looking at my Summer-ish door décor I decided I needed something more that the little pumpkin sign that says happy fall y’all.

I started searching through my garage because I just knew I had something I had brought home from my mom’s house and I found it! I still have the little basket you see tucked inside but have not decided what I will do with it yet.

PERFECT!


Then I started rummaging around my boxes of fall foliage to see what I had that I thought I could use to and gather it all together. The orignal flowers that I pulled out of my box just didn't work for me so I made a trip to the store to pick up the Sunflowers and the foam disk. When I started getting everything gathered I could not find my floral wire so it was another trip out to the store to pick some up and while there I found the pumpkin and the stems of fall colored balls that I thought would be perfect accents.

After I got the basket put together I realized I needed another roll of ribbon so that’s not pictured.


Anyway, here are the results! I love how it turned out!


Thanks for stopping by!
